What I Learned after Four Years of Surrounding Myself with Girl Hate

No one wants to believe that a life can be ruined by a few tweets.



I try to tell them, but they won’t believe me. They won’t believe that 120 characters could do real harm. They are so wrong. Girl hate is real and powerful and I’ve lived in it.

Getting Permission

The manuscript is done—it just needs copy editing and proofing, and then it will be a book. But it seems there is one more major hurdle I hadn’t counted on.

After spending the last five years writing this book, everything now hangs upon getting permission to quote from the letters of the figures I’m writing about. Chief among them are, of course, Constance Fenimore Woolson and Henry James. And it seems there are living descendants whose permission I need.

All along I had been…

On Death and Driving Lessons

I was two weeks shy of my 27th birthday when I moved back to my parents’ Toronto home after living away for nearly a decade.

Returning home was as hard a choice as it was an easy one. Hard because the idea of coming full circle felt like a failure to me; easy because I needed somewhere familiar to crash (and a warm bed and good food didn’t hurt, either).

What exacerbated matters, though, was my lack of a driver’s license. While I traveled via subway and cabs in New York City…

Single Women

So, you hate being single and you don’t understand why you can’t find the right man to share your life with. Every time you think you’ve found “the one,” he ends up being just like the others you’ve had before. You’ve questioned yourself, “Why do I keep attracting the same kind of man? What’s wrong with me? Why can’t I find a man that will respect and love me? Why do I attract men that like to cheat, lie, abuse me, and treat…

Even my mother called from her sunny kitchen in rural Derry, where the weather is cooperating and will hopefully stay dry for the …

Women Write Out of the Binders

When I was young I had the hardest time learning to tie my shoes. My mother assured me with the wise words of “you know, you could eat an entire bear by yourself. Just take one bite at a time.” Her words helped me leave Velcro behind long ago, but I also thought of them again recently, in relation to my writing life.…
